European Dining at The Cloister

A little French, very fresh. All around delicious.

The ingredients, at first glance, might appear simple. Mushrooms, chicken, sweet potato, lamb. But it’s the simplicity of each on their own and the magic of bringing them together that makes dining at the River Bar so delicious. It’s fun and familiar, but always with some French flair or a Southern twist. Perfect for lunch, warm and friendly for dinner, ideal for drinks.

But we’d be lying if we told you that the atmosphere has nothing to do with the River Bar’s charm. Clinking glasses at the bar, laughs around the tables, lively conversation around the room. The warmth of the service. And how the sunlight lights up the room during the day and sunsets bring spectacular views over the river. Your table is waiting.

River Bar Lounge

Not ready to say goodbye to the day just yet? Delight in some good company, vintage malt whiskey, port, or cognac at the River Bar Lounge. Grand leather chairs. Wood-paneled walls. Old nautical charts and exquisite paintings. And a ceiling made of heart of cypress and pecky cypress beams more than 200 years old.

Enjoy a drink and a late bite. Order a charcuterie to share, snack on our famous truffle fries, or satisfy that late-night craving for French Beignets. Made all the more decadent by the charm and character of your surroundings.
